The Foundation for Shamanic Studies - Preservation, Study & Teaching
Category: Learning Center, Community, Lectures, Foundation, Shamanic Studies | Website: www.shamanism.org

Dedicated to the preservation, study, and teaching of shamanic knowledge for the welfare of the Planet and its inhabitants. Started in 1979 as the Center for Shamanic Studies, the Foundation for Shamanic Studies presents the world's foremost training programs in shamanism and shamanic healing.

They are based on the pioneering work of anthropologist Michael Harner, who brought shamanism to contemporary life in the West after extensive field and cross-cultural investigation, experimentation, and personal practice. He originated, researched, and developed core shamanism, a system designed for Westerners to apply shamanism and shamanic healing successfully to their daily lives.

This system is based upon the underlying universal, near-universal, and common features of shamanism-together with journeys to other worlds-rather than upon culture-specific variations and elaborations.

The Vedic Network - A Directory Listing Of All Things Vedic Meditation
Category: Meditation, Vedic, Network | Website: www.vedicnetwork.com

Vedic Meditation is a simple, natural technique practiced sitting comfortably with eyes closed for 15-20 minutes, twice a day. And absolutely anyone can learn the technique in just four short sessions. So, why would anyone want to learn? Because Vedic Meditation does two things really well.

1. It helps you achieve a profoundly deep state of restfulness, reported to be three to five times deeper than sleep. This deep rest gained on a daily basis rejuvenates and restores your entire system and allows you to release years of accumulated stress.

2. While the body is enjoying this deep state of rest, the mind effortlessly settles down to quieter and quieter states of awareness until you transcend the field of thought completely to have a direct experience of your most essential self, of the "you" that lies beyond all your thoughts and stress and struggles. It feels great. You emerge rested and energized and, at the same time, grounded. And that's only the beginning.



Theresa Caputo - Long Island Medium
Category: Medium | Website: www.theresacaputo.com

Theresa began seeing spirit at age 4. I suffered from anxiety for years until my mom suggested I go to a spiritual healer/teacher. I went to see Pat Longo and that's how I found out that I had the ability to communicate with spirit. I have been a practicing medium for over 10 years and a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation - an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife.

People ask me to describe the process of receiving information. It's hard for me to describe because I see, hear and feel things differently than we do in the physical world. My wish for every person I come in contact with, is that they receive a message that will give them healing and closure to embrace life without their loved ones.

Now appearing on TLC's Long Island Medium, Many people ask how the show began. My friend Victoria felt that I was made for TV and this was the perfect way to share my gift with everyone. Her sister Courtney and friend Jonathan both Producers helped make that a reality. Between TLC, Magilla Entertainment and my incredible crew I've been able to share my life and amazing gift with the world.

At the end of the day I'm just Theresa Caputo a medium, wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend from Hicksville. Faith, love and happiness to you always!!!!
